Up Close with Victoria Prize recipient

22 October

2013 Victoria Prize for Science & Innovation recipient Professor Lloyd Hollenberg was interviewed for the University of Melbourne's Up Close program.

In his interview he explains how quantum technologies are leading to the development of sensors of only a few atoms’ size - small enough to be placed inside living cells to enable monitoring of biological processes.

The episode is presented by Dr Shane Huntington, the Principal Strategy Adviser to Professor James Angus, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. Previously he was Principal Strategy Adviser to the Vice-Chancellor of The University of Melbourne, Prof. Glyn Davis. He also holds an adjunct research position within the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne.
